Conclusion

Congratulations! You have finished this tutorial.

As you have seen, for over 40 years, VISTAs like you have devoted a year of their lives to challenge poverty’s root causes. As a new VISTA member, you are joining a group of more than 177,000 ordinary people who have met extraordinary challenges. To read more about the legacy of VISTAs, download the "VISTA... in Service to America" book.

This year, you will mobilize community volunteers and local resources. You will increase the capacity of people to rely on themselves. Through your efforts, individuals and communities will gain the knowledge and tools they need to finally get on the other side of poverty. Welcome, thank you, and good luck!
